fuel tank interior spout pre and post 1999

Recommended Posts

2001...replaced fuel tank with pre 1999 tank,  I’m not sure exactly what year donor was.  On the inside of the (newer) 2001 tank, where the fuel goes in there is a 4 or 5 inch spout that deflects fuel just a little bit to the rear of tank.  Pre 1999 tank does not have this spout inside of tank.  Parts manual shows tank is used by gas and diesel models.  

Other minor differences …hose size, where hoses go into tank and different thread on gas cap.  

Question 1  Any ideas as to why OEM wants fuel diverted a bit to rear of tank?  Wondering if I'm missing anything of real importance?

Other than incoming fuel may hit fuel sender, The engineers are trying to justify their existence.

Thank you.  Sort of what I was thinking, but not sure.  

 

01 fuel... hose connection is 13 inches from module

pre 99 fuel... hose connection is 15 inches from module

The arm that holds the float/bobber thing, longest reach is 5 inches.

 

So unless I'm filling up on atleast a 45 degree angle, No chance of incoming fuel hitting anything, in my opinion.

My main service area is north San Diego County and the very south west part of Riverside County.   Lake Forest is in Orange County, about 60 miles from me, and just north of Mission Viejo where I had worked for a Volvo dealer back in the early 80's.

If you're at your sons house and need help call me, I'll be there.59c9b17e9b0b8_MOBILEMECH.jpeg.1ea1b82507037008c76bfa220d2dd9cd.jpeg
